The term "material scheduling" is used to describe the short-term planning of the supply for production with materials with regard to quantity and time while considering cost criteria. The guideline describes and defines the terms, explains the important parameters and their relationships, and shows an example for the application. Against the theoretical background, a proven system in practice for the disposition of burden materials is presented. The order quantities are determined from the consumption curve and the average consumption per order period. The time of order is based on a minimal inventory. The guideline explains how to monitor contract quantities of suppliers, how to register the need for follow-up contracts in time, how to determine contract amounts and how to calculate timely retrieval proposals.The objective of "material scheduling", hence, guarantees the requested ability to supply while minimizing storage costs and order costs.
